The United States are probably more famous for their American sports such as baseball, ice hockey, basketball and American football but the game of soccer has become more popular in the last few years in the USA. It is apparently the most played sport in the country now and is attracting more and more fans to games. USA have 4 Gold Cup wins to their name and shocked most people by beating Spain in the 2009 Confederations Cup before losing in the final.
